    I heard the Sette shock pump from pricepoint.com is good, according to Mountain Bike Action Magazine. It has a mesh hose, I think, for whatever that's worth. They also said the Rock Shox Boxxer pump can be used on tires as well as shocks. I don't have an air shock yet so I can only tell you what I read.

    The floodgate was all the way to the right.

    I put the same amount of air, by the gauge, in both chambers.

    It appears that the creaking sound happens when it is locked out and the sound is coming from friction from the uppers rubbing on the lowers.

    I wish I didn't have to disassemble the fork to adjust the travel.

    Thanks very much for the help. This is my first new mt. bike in 12 years so I need all the help I can get.
    Happy to provide what help I can.

    Is your Reba currently set up for 20% sag?

    That I do not know. I didn't have an extra hand when I built it up and have totally overlooked that since it's been built. I will get on it. Thanks.

    Hello everyone, I've just ordered myself a Sette Razzo frame, and I am curious what type of headset fits there?

    Nice one! If you don't mind. How tall are you and what size is that frame? Is it a 20"? I'm 6'1" and got an 18" but now I'm afraid it is too small for me. The stand over height is what I was concerned about with the 20". Let me know what you think. Thanks!

    Hi, I am 190 cm (I guess it will be 6'2") tall and got 20" frame. Feels right to me, I am even concidering buying a longer stem. If you have long feet and 18" seems too small, you can exchange it.

    Would you mind posting your build components? Is that an '08 reba on there too? How do you like the handling with that fork

    new build

    22" Sette Razzo 29er frame
    Reba SL '08
    Maddux T2 Explorer wheels
    Kenda Small Block 8's
    Avid Juicy 5's
    X9 drivetrain build kit
    Truvativ Stylo cranks (in drivetrain build kit)
    Gigatube BB (in drivetrain build kit)
    cheapest Eggbeaters
    WTB Rocket V saddle
    Easton Monkeylite SL CNT riser bar
    Race Face Deus stem 130mm
    Sette carbon seatpost
    Sette red lockon grips

    I got everything from pricepoint and built it up last night.

    Haven't weighed it yet, spent too much time riding today I'm guessing somewhere in the 24 lb range. Very fun bike here on the local hilly trails. I got over some trail obstacles much more easily than with my 26", and I noticed its a lot lighter than my redline monocog

    Does the complete bike from pricepoint have 80 or 100 mm of travel?

    I've been riding mountain bikes since 1990 and I've never broken one before. I have fatigued aluminum frames so badly they are covered in stress fractures and are unsafe to ride. Steel bikes do not have this problem. The derailleur hanger can simply be bent back in to place if this ever happens. I've had 3 Cannondales, because the first two frames broke, 2 Treks (because the first frame broke), 1 Barracuda Easton Varilite tubing with incorporated hanger. Great frame but too fatigued to ride anymore, that's just what aluminum does. 2 Steel Breezer Lightening frames, never looked back, best thing I ever did. Oh yeah, I once had a steel stumpjumper but sold it because I thought aluminum was the way to go. I built up the Sette Razzo to try a go at the 29ers and am now experiencing the same thing with aluminum. It breaks. Frame will be up on ebay shortly for cheap, going to build up a steel 29er. Life is too short to ride aluminum. My 29er is out of commission until Pricepoint can get a hanger and that will be at least another week.
